Lovely, Still Reviews
In a nutshell
I am going to lie to you. I am going to pretend Lovely, Still is about Robert and Mary meeting in their old age and falling in love. Watch the film!
Mood of the film
Mostly enchanting, yet completely tragic.
"It's not me that is leaving you; it is you that is leaving me."
Watch the film and you will understand why this is the pivotal line/scene in the film, one that does your head in!
It's a tie.
When Mary opens the wrong Christmas present she discovers something both spine-chilling and heart-rending. Watch the film!
The love story initially seems too good to be true and it is a tad too schmaltzy, which might tempt a few souls to lose interest. Don't! It is intentional and totally worth it. Watch the film!
Is the film relevant today?
I cannot tell you why this film is relevant today without giving away the plot and spoiling a great film and its relevance in this day and age. Watch the film!
Lovely, Still is rated PG for thematic material, mild language and brief smoking!
The tale of this is quite simple its about an elder man named Robert who go's on a date with his neighbor Mary and quickly falls in love with her. This is his bang in love and dosn't know much so he go's to his friend Mike for help. Throughout this movie i just feel good and well that's it. It's got great acing but not to well on the cinematography. Its a good flick and a feel good film and that's pretty much all i can say about it.
Like Robert (Landau), the viewer believes Mary (Burstyn) has just met Robert. As the story unfolds, with Mike, Robert's 'boss', and Alex, Mary's worried daughter, the viewer gradually understands the broader picture and true depth of the story.
The final scenes reveal the true story and the depth of a family's love. You may have to watch it twice!
